The route's dichotomy is between the slabby footwork of the lower half, and the vertical handwork of the upper half (where the crux can be found).
The route starts on a ledge halfway up the left side of the main wall. A use trail follows the creek left of the wall uphill past a pool and small waterfalls. From the top, one can reach the anchor bolts, and rappel down to the start of the climb.
Alternately, one can scramble from the ground up a series of slabs and ledges, which can be seasonally overgrown or dirty.
A pair of bolts makes setting a toprope fairly simple.
